Is this their way of trying to make up for Loutallica?

It's not working.

it might work better if the drums weren't so lame. The little bit of double bass almost redeems the track towards the end, but overall it just doesn't get up and go. I guess that is why it was unreleased *shrugs* ... but really, how hard is it to go back in and beef up the track? Not like they don't have a gizillion dollars and plenty of folks willing to play in the studio with/for them at the drop of a hat.

I wish they would stop releasing half a$$ garbage (like Lulu and b-sides) and take the time to put out a masterpiece like Ride the Lightning again ... that, or retire from making records and let some new musicians gain the spotlight.

Thanks for letting me know KREDD. I wonder if the label removed the other ones as well. So - I posted the live version of it at the Fillmore.

why metallica puts out a new song every 2 days.

metallica once great band now just searching
for your attention.

metallica should return to their older style becuse
last 4 albums are:generic
simple guitar playing ...commercial issue
boring...older albums..er more intresting.
metallica care more about money that
is why last 4 albums is bad.

If done the right way this might work. They need to develop a darker sound kind of like black sabbath mixed with slayer.
